Jeffrey Shaw
City University of Hong Kong
Inventing New Media Art
The practices of New Media Art today offer a fecund spectrum of expressions that build worlds and forge experiences based on the radical expansion of the aesthetics of intercommunication. Its galvanic concerns are embodied engagement; prosthetic perception; the mergence of the real and virtual; the re-enactment of cultural heritage; the antipodal bounty and blight of technology; narrative after story-telling; the singularity of art and the pharmacological imperative for its constant re-invention. In his keynote Professor Jeffrey Shaw will elucidate a forty-year art practice that ranges between expanded cinema and virtual reality, showing examples of work that describe the reformulation of narrative as a situation of emergent visualization and interaction. He will also describe recent projects he has been making with Professor Sarah Kenderdine that transform cultural heritage data into compelling narratives of engagement. These works together demonstrate the opportunities for new media art to generate a rich re-imagining of our cultural histories, presents and futures.

Creative Identity in the Networked Society
As citizens participate in social networks, they experience a continuous challenge to excel in personal manifestation through images, network relationships etc.. This keynote highlights the cultural evolution that will affect the post-Corona period starts. Both Education, Care and Arts suffer from the current lock-downs. Inevitably, students, patients and artists will try to recover from the painful social isolations and new opportunities to start new business models; Virtuality, mobile- and vicarious modes of participation are going to lift off. The question is how citizens are going to manifest themselves on the web. Examples and thought frames will be provided.
